    Google Local, confusion


    Hey guys,

    Just getting started with web marketing.
    What is the difference between the following google services?

    Google business center
    Google Business listing
    Google places
    Google maps
    Google Plus Local page
    Google Plus Business page

    I am confused..
    Can someone please lay out all the option google provides for promoting a small local business?

    Many thanks,
    J

    Google Places/Goolge+ Local confusion: Resolved


    All the above are either variations or discontinued names relating to 2 service...

    I ran searches for the above terms and they all led back to 2 pages:

    Google Places:
    http://www.google.com/places/

    Google+ Local:
    http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/local/


    All the confusion is regarding the "Google Places" & "Google+ Local" transition:
